Both teams don’t have any injury concerns and are likely to remain unchanged.
With 250 Wickets, Jhulan Goswami is the most successful bowler in Women’s cricket, and has also been doing a good job in this tournament. Her last over against Australia will however be one for her to forget. She failed to defend eight in the final over, and gave away some crucial boundaries, leaving her heartbroken. With a heartbreak behind her, Jhulan Goswami will be eager to make amends in the next two games, and extend her World Cup career.
Nahida Akter bowled a nice and economical spell against West Indies. She had three maidens and two wickets, helping Bangladesh get ever so close to beating the West Indies. With some nice bowling performances in the tournament, she seems like a bowler who is tough to get away.
